    rockingham wa

I am just after general information , like what does it offer as i have a 17 & 21 year old who will also be moving . :rolleyes:
  4. Hi We emigrated to Australia in September this year after a very long and anxious process. We had a very good network of friends in England that we have regrettably left at home. We lived in Portsmouth (south of england) So we are seeking friends in and around the area of Rockingham, Waikiki. I am 40 hubbie is 41. 3 kids, 21 year old daughter, that is still in england, coming over after she finishes her degreee. Two boys 14 and 13. We are very social just trying to adjust to the australian way of life. Any meet ups or get togethers we would be interested in. Cheers. Sharon and Carl.
  5. Hi, my partner and I have been lurking in the shadows of PIO for what seems like years!!! She is an Aussie citizen, returning home, I'm coming in on the "I'm with her visa" (OK, the 309/100 sub-class). We have been planning this since 2006! The planets are aligning and at last we have been able to tell people - what a relief.......!! Living together for 8 years, so defacto visa no problem. Business interests in UK and Oz, so job not really a problem - though I may start on a contract job first to fill the coffers more! Location not firm yet, though will start in Rockingham, WA staying with family and use it as base-camp for road-trips (and air-trips!) to find the ideal piece of land. ETA in WA? Well....target August-October, visa and 'leave to remove' permitting..... Interested in hooking up with people that know the Rockingham area (we lived there for for almost a month, but only checked out the beach!). Info needed about schools (especially Rockingham Senior High - anyone got kids doing the maritime programme?), dentists, doctors etc. Woo-hoo!! We're on our way! And the GBP/AUD rate is FINALLY creeping in the right direction!
  6. Hi, we are looking at secondary education for our eldest son (would be starting Year 8 in Feb 12) and have been recommended Kolbe College in Rockingham. Has anyone on here sent their child there? If yes, what do you think?? Many thanks

    Rockingham Crime Rate

    I have been doing a little research on Rockingham and there appears to be an awful lot of serious crimes , a stabbing in the shopping centre, drug lab found, carjacking, how true to form is this ? Dave
  15. Hi everyone, Im new to your site however hoping you can help??? Were in the process of moving from the northern suburbs to Rockingham, can anyone tell me which is the best state primary school??? Not sure how many there are, ive heard of Rockingham beach and bungaree, were thinking of maybe moving to the Anchorage estate depending on the school. Thanks in advance :biggrin:
  16. Hi All - I'm looking for some advice please ... We have booked our flights - leaving the UK on the 27th Feb 2012. We are not planning to ship anything but we do intend to use all our available baggage allowance when we leave. Signapore Airlines have comfirmed they will double our allowance giving us a total of 140 Kg plus hand luggage. Now I've just been doing a bit of investigation and that is a lot of luggage!!:huh: I'm thinking that besides the usual suitcase/ruchsacks we will use some of the allowance to take kids books and toys - packing them into storage boxes. The guidlines from S.A. only stipulates that any individual item must weigh a mx of 32kgs. I'm hoping this plan is ok. But this leaves with so many items there is no way we can use public transport with two very small children in tow. My question is after arriving in Perth Intl we need to get ourselves and all our luggage to Rockingham. We are fllying straight through so there is no way we are gonna contemplate hiring a car. From past experience taxis in Perth are very very very expensive. Does anyone have an alternative idea on how we can get there? The only option I can see at present is to book into a local airport hotel and pickup a hire car the following day. Anyones thougths and experiences would be very gratefully recieved Est :notworthy:

  23. Hi We are a family of four moving to Perth, my husband has been offered a job and we are now just waiting for our visa. He is due to start work on June 1st, visa dependant. We have decided we are going to move to Rockingham. I am a full time mummy to J nearly 3 and E nearly 1. At the moment we are very social during the week and go to toddler groups most days. I would appreciate any information on groups/meet ups in Rockingham for young children, softplays, or if there are any other mummies that would like to meet up for play dates. I have been looking at schools and i like Rockingham Beach primary school , does anyone have any opinion on this school, hopefully we will be able to rent within the catchment area. Thankyou Christine, Chris , J and E x
